    Aspire BDC sucks. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi all,

    So I got my new aspire mini nova, stuck it on my vision spinner.

    It's really airy and there is no flavour compared to my evod. It tastes like crap at any voltage and my evods provide a much richer flavour. I put a beauty ring on my spinner, thought that might stop it being so airy, but nope, still horrible.

    Is this weird or what?

    Back on my evod (yum) and considering putting my aspire in the for sale section.

    I just heard so many good things about these, but I get no taste or throat hit. Maybe I should pop in another coil and see if that changes things.

    Any ideas? Or should I just sell it with the extra coils I bought.

    Firstly I am not a convert to them but you need to give them a chance. It took a good tank or more for the flavour to come through for me. Not sure about the airy as I found them ok.

    Hmm. I've put about 4 tanks through and if anything it's getting worse. Very strange

    Hmm, i moved from some el-cheapo to mini/maxi nova's and i think they're great... But i have nothing decent to compare them too, however they were recommended highly by AVF members...

    If you do sell them, PM me, i'll take them

    Definitely try another coil. I have found the pre-installed ones sometimes don't perform well.

    Also when u fill it with juice, give it 5 minutes to soak the wick, or u risk getting a foul taste. Giving it a few sucks without firing might also help.

    Did you get the shielded glass tank version or the colored plastic tank version?
    It shouldn't make a difference but it might.

    I have 2 of the mini vivi Aspires & 2 reg Vivi Aspires all with shielded glass & if anything they are a little on the tight side for draw, fresh out of the box, for me.
    I don't think a new coil head is going to change the draw on it but I can suggest a remedy, get a round toothpick & poke it into one of the airholes on the 510 connection, find where the toothpick is about the same diameter, cut off the pointy end & wedge it in there(if you don't cut it back it will be too long).
    Now that it's wedged in tight, cut or snap the toothpick as close as you can to the metal connector, once you have done that , trim any long splinters that may be still on it, then you are good to go.
    Congrats, you just halved the airflow.

    I think if the draw is too airy, you will get less flavor, the remedy above should fix all your issues.

    If I have a bad coil, it's usually too tight a draw. But yeah, I'd suggest changing the coil to see if there's a difference. A good one, once it's primed, should vape beautifully from the get-go, even if the flavours have to bed in a little bit.

    Hi Shpondra, I thought the EVOD was a bit airy at first (but it wasn't really) so all i did was fired the button with my thunb and put my index finger over one of the holes and it really made the draw a lot tighter. Sometimes I do it now other times I don't, give that a go.
